Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell

"He knew where he was now. Death Swamp and its quicksand."

What  a fantastic short story. It is such a thriller. I'm not quite sure how to describe it without giving away too much. A slender volume of less than fifty pages can be surprisingly full of excitement and danger. When the hunter becomes the hunted, a remote island can become a life threatening place. Did I mention the ending (no spoilers) is phenomenal - fantastically understated last line - loved it.

5 out of 5 - not the kind of island holiday I'd seek out.
